White Throated Kingfisher

White Throated Kingfisher

The white-throated kingfisher (Halcyon smyrnensis) also known as the white-breasted kingfisher is a Tree Kingfisher , widely distributed in Asia from the Sinai east through the Indian Subcontinent to the Philippines.

It’s from another angle

This breed of bird is a resident over much of its range, although some populations may make short distance movements. It can often be found well away from water where it feeds on a wide range of prey that includes small reptiles, amphibians, crabs, small rodents and even birds.

During the breeding season they call loudly in the mornings from prominent perches including the tops of buildings in urban areas or on wires.

All these three clicks are from Nandankanan wetlands near Bhubaneswar Odisha, India and I am lucky this bird posed before my camera though it’s a very common bird found in abundance near water bodies in most part of India.
